    • Food

In this episode we meet Derek Charge, who is CEO of Hellyers Road Distillery in Tasmania.
Hellyers Road was founded in 1997 by a group of dairy farmers who decided to diversify their business into the production of whisky.
At the time of this episode going to air, the company is in the final stages of an equity crowdfunding campaign that has already generated almost $3.5 million worth of investment.
I've never known much about Hellyers Road beyond what I've heard anecdotally from people.
So, this juncture seemed like the perfect opportunity to catch up with Derek and satisfy my curiosity about a significant player in Australian whisky that up until now, has flown a little bit under the radar.
